May 2, 2018 – San Jose, CA – Chase Corporation, a global leading manufacturer of protective materials for high reliability applications based in Westwood, MA, has deployed CloudGenix to build a unified application fabric, reduce private WAN costs, enable per-application controls, and reduce remote office hardware and complexity.
Prior to CloudGenix, Chase Corp had deployed and managed an MPLS-based WAN. While MPLS had proven itself reliable, application performance, availability, and visibility were a continuing concern. With CloudGenix, Chase Corp was able to integrate broadband Internet at their branch offices, align WAN capacity and resources with business priority, and reduce their need for MPLS. “With CloudGenix, we were able to add broadband Internet and control which applications used which classes of WAN link”, said Mike Tran, Network Engineer at Chase Corp.
Chase Corp now enjoys the benefit of having per-application controls, allowing them to define business policies that dictate how precious WAN resources are allocated and which WAN links can be used by which applications. “AppFabric made configuration and management easy. I select an application, choose the allowed WAN paths, and specify the business priority”, said Tran.
Chase Corp chose CloudGenix after evaluating SD-WAN solutions from both startups as well as established vendors. Each of the solutions evaluated proved to be too complex to manage or too expensive given the lack of capabilities required by Chase Corp. “Some of the solutions required a configuration guide that was as thick as a novel”, said Tran. With AppFabric, Chase Corp has the ability to manage their WAN in business terms – applications, sites, and WAN links – rather than esoteric networking rules and protocols.
CloudGenix AppFabric SD-WAN is a revolutionary solution that allows businesses to interconnect remote sites with applications deployed anywhere – in the cloud, data center, or SaaS – using a business-centric set of policies for performance, security, and compliance. CloudGenix uses metrics collected from both the network and application transactions to provide the best possible user experience over any WAN transport including broadband, MPLS, and LTE. Additionally, AppFabric exposes critical key performance indicators for both networks and applications to help improve management, monitoring, and troubleshooting for both networks and applications.
